Nollywood great, Jim Iyke has responded to the trending Shatta Wale’s outburst aimed at Nigerians when he successfully sold out the Accra Sports Stadium during the festive season in his Freedom Wave Concert.
The accomplished actor who is a very good friend to the Ghanaian Dancehall artiste further said Shatta Wale is entitled to his own opinion about Nigerians in the entertainment industry.
Speaking further, Jim said he does not have a problem with Shatta Wale’s opinions as long as they do not interfere with the relationship they have built over the years as friends. Moreover, he said the fact he disagrees with what he said does not mean he should detest his personality.
He said aside from Shatta Wale being a personal friend, the artiste also supports him in everything he does. “Shatta actually supports everything I do, so I don’t know, I mean the man is entitled to his opinion as long as it doesn’t rob of my personal relationship with him”, he said.
He further added;
“It’s not in my place to determine what people say or how they react with, maybe his intention wasn’t bad, when he said it, it’s people’s reaction that determines, people react to things in a different way, you could say something bad and I would see a major good in it, I will just chalk it down, it could be your opinion and you are entitled to it”, said.
“The fact that I disagree with someone’s opinion does not mean I should dislike his personality”, he added.
